BiggerPockets is the leading resource for anyone looking to succeed in real estate investing. We offer content, tools, and a community of 2,000,000 members to help people avoid mistakes; learn valuable tips; find partners, deals, and financing; and make the best investment decisions.

Our mission at BiggerPockets is to help people achieve financial freedom through real estate investing. Since 2004, we’ve helped investors get their first (or next) deal through a unique combination of immersive education, deal analysis tools, and a supportive community.

BiggerPockets is hiring a Software Developer to help us build software products, and help define technical strategy.

As a Software Developer at BiggerPockets, you will help drive the business forward by writing great software, evolve the Engineering team through mentoring and continuous improvement of our processes and toolchain, and help define the technology and product strategy.

Software Developers at BiggerPockets spend their time building software that allows our users to achieve their goals, owning the design and development of projects from start to finish. They write clean, pragmatic code, and also offer input throughout the product development process, knowing how best to apply technology to business problems. And they work hard to make everyone else around them better, taking an interest in the growth of the team and the people on it.

RESPONSIBILITIES & DUTIES

Some examples of things that will occupy your day-to-day:

  • Building a brand new feature or product, working across the entire stack from frontend to backend
  • Refactoring a legacy component or system, or improving its performance
  • Collaborating on high-level architecture for a solution to be implemented
  • Selecting a new framework, library, platform, or other technology
  • Turning a mockup into a working product that communicates with a REST API
  • Conducting reviews of code written by other engineers
  • Running informal internal workshops to educate on best practices

The BiggerPockets Stack

We run a Ruby on Rails (6!) monolith with a React and Stimulus frontend. On the backend, we use PostgreSQL, Elasticsearch, Redis, and Memcached. We use a lot of background processing through Sidekiq. This is all running on the Heroku platform where we release continuously, throughout the day, using CircleCI.

We love testing (RSpec is our framework of choice) and we employ a lot of static analysis (Rubocop, ESLint) to help us write the best code we can.

Internally, most of our communication and project logistics happen in Slack, GitHub, Zoom, and Jira. We’re a remote-friendly team with people from the US and Europe.

You can learn a little more about how we work and the history of Engineering at the company in some recent appearances on the Heroku blog and podcast.

SALARY: The salary range for this job position is $75,000-$115,000+ based on experience, plus a 10% bonus potential based on company and personal performance.
